Champions League Round Of 16: Farcical Scenes Mean

Champions League Round Of 16: Farcical Scenes Mean
Share this article

After a pulsating Matchday 6, the draw for the last 16 of the Champions League was made this morning, and it seemed certain that we'd be in for more drama when the best football competition in the world resumes next February.

We didn't expect all the drama to take place this morning, however.

A fascinating draw that served up Messi v Ronaldo had to be rendered null and void when a number of irregularities took place.



Liverpool had been handed a sympathetic draw against Salzburg  and Chelsea were drawn with Lille.

However the whole thing was tossed in the bin and history was unwritten.

Here's the results of the first Champions League Round of 16:

Real Madrid v Benfica


Manchester City v Villareal


Bayern Munich v Atletico Madrid

Liverpool v Salzburg


Ajax v Inter

Manchester United v PSG

Juventus v Sporting Lisbon


Chelsea v Lille

A second draw took place at 2pm Irish time and here are the results of the revised draw.

While we are denied the Messi-Ronaldo drama, PSG v Real will be tasty as Mbappe faces his likely future team. Liverpool have a much more stern test having to play Inter. Atletico vs Manchester United will surely pack drama, while Chelsea drew Lille for a second time.
